Strange though it seems, apples have a tendency to start things. The story of Adam and Eve, for instance, or Newton’s ruminations on gravity. Apples also started the restoration odyssey of a particular bit of General Motors history. When an aged lady came to the home of Allan and Pat Kehrley in Liberty, New York, to buy apples one summer day, another story was begun.

A partially assembled old car in the garage caught the eye of Helen Adolph, who had owned a car like that when she was a young woman. She told Allan and Pat some of her stories: how she bought her black car in New York City in 1936 and used to drive it up to Sullivan County every weekend until she and her family moved up permanently in 1941; how after the war, it was stored in her barn’s hay loft, and how upset she was when her husband sold it in 1953 without consulting her.  Continue to full article and images.
